Sant Elm beach

Quiet backwater for lonely travellers

Sant Elm is a small picturesque beach on the west coast of the island, located in a small Sant Elm resort about 8 km from the city of Andratx. It got its name from the Church of Sant Elm, patron of seafarers. The Church was built in 1279 by Jaume II, King of Spain. Despite its small size, the beach, which has the Blue flag award, is considered a very important tourist destination of the municipality.
